Employment & immigration

We are employment and immigration solicitors based across four offices, Southampton, Salisbury, Poole and a serviced office in Winchester. Client service is our priority so we work closely with all our clients to build a real understanding of their needs and how they like to operate. Our fundamental aim is to be professional, commercial and easy to work with. As a result, all our employment law solicitors have been recruited for both the correct attitude and the correct skills.

In September 2016, the team published a White Paper titled 'Working towards 2020: Employment Trends in the Central South.' Please click here to read it.

We are experts in:

  • Senior Executive Appointments / Terminations
  • Contract of Employment / Service Agreement Drafting
  • Restrictive Covenants / Breaches of Confidentiality
  • Settlement Agreements
  • Business Immigration
  • Redundancy and Restructuring Programmes
  • Changing Terms / Harmonisation of Terms
  • TUPE, Business Transfers and Outsourcing
  • Equal Pay
  • Dismissal - Performance, Absences and Misconduct
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Employment Tribunal Claims and ACAS

Other ways we can help you. Please just ask:

  • Do you need guidance on legal compliance?
  • Do you need a review of your employment contracts, policies and procedures?
  • Do your managers need training?
  • How do you want to pay for legal advice?
  • Are you insured against employment tribunal claims?

The team are recommended in Chambers (2017) for providing employment support to corporate clients from various sectors and handling the full range of employment issues, with sources saying "It is a firm you can trust in terms of both their advice and value for money.  I am more than satisfied with the service.".  Chambers also recognise Simon Rhodes as a Notable Practitioner (top ranking him in Band 1).

Legal 500 (2016) also praise the ‘very good’ team at Trethowans led by the ‘concise and risk-focused’ Simon Rhodes, who is joined by Kathryn Casey-Evans.
